The Way Forward

MARTINS ON MISSION SEPTEMBER UPDATE
The past few weeks have been filled with many conversations about our plans, our hopes, and our fears about following God’s leading to the mission field. Through those conversations, I’ve been thinking a lot about our plans, as well as contemplating God’s plans.
I doubt it will be a surprise to any of you, that God’s plan graciously involves the church which He is building. We often take it for granted that we are His witnesses, ambassadors of the Kingdom of God. I think this should be a little shocking to us. Christians, who but for the grace of God would still be His enemies, are His chosen means of making Himself known. Paul goes further in Ephesians 3 to tell us that God’s plan is to make His wisdom known through the Church! These are wonderful plans, and we are all blessed to be a part of them.
